Test fitment: done.
Massively enlarged sealed intake inlets
[...] with matching side inlets
[...] and shorter velocity stacks will be tested for high RPM performance.
The massive increase in air volume requires Alpha N performance tuning.
The larger inlets will not have MAF bungs to optimize for space.
A new pair Intake Air Temperature sensors will be required and included along with the wiring and connectors.
I documented in vast details the installation process of the OE+ plenum. I will further document the Competiton Spec specifics.
If your mechanic thinks he's smart and skips this, don't pay the bill.
No! However, Sal and I are looking to see if a tune can be optimized for the larger air volume. TBD.
The CSL Plenum OE+ variant introduced in 2022 was a first steps towards bringing to market the first commercially available V10 CSL carbon intake system.
A few of us wanted more. We wanted the original.
The Competition Spec aims at achieving this objective with a massively enlarged, fully sealed, complete carbon intake system running exclusively on AlphaN.
In this Special Series, I build upon the original series and dive into the development, test fitment and upcoming impressions of the Competiiton variant.

The sound is very S54 CSL-esque: addicting, intoxicating - all apply.
InfinityDesign's unique product design and engineering is crafted by the grand-daddy of the most popular S85 products and tuners to hundreds of S85s: Salman.
As a former Evolve co-owner, he headed engineering & development for all products.
He notably signed off on numerous popular V10 products: e-tronic exhaust systems, headers, cat deletes, carbon intakes along with the V8 supercharger kits & tuning maps during the 2000s until he exited the company in 2015.
